HIMALAYAS Jannu & Glacier 1899 spectacular

Lot 2208 Details

Description
VITTORIO SELLA. Jannu and Glacier, Kangbachen District , 1899, Sella number HS 119. 7.2x9.4" collodion print, printed 1901, mounted on 10x12" heavy brown board. Embossed with Vittorio Sella stamp in print lower right. Inscribed in black ink mount recto: Jannu (7601 m) and glacier. Inscribed in pencil mount recto: 119 / HS 119.

Ansel Adams paid tribute to Sella's greatness in a 1946 article for the Sierra Club Bulletin when hewrote, "with Sella's sensitive insight and response the magnificence of mountains is distilled into a high order of expression."

This dramatic view of Jannu and its glacier shows the emotion and style that Ansel Adams pre-visualized 30 years later.

Jannu/Kumbakarna Mountain is 7,710 m 25, 300 ft., the 32 highest mountain in the world, in Nepal to east of Kangchenjunga

"The foot of the Jannu Glacier is 13,500 feet above sea-level. Its ramparts mark a complete and sudden change in scenery. Above them, with the exception of the brushwood on the slope near the village, all is bare rock and turf - the region is one of treeless pasture." p. 182. Round Kangchenjunga: A Narrative of Mountain Travel and Exploration, by Douglas Freshfield, London, Edward Arnold 1903.
Condition
Minor wear, edge and corner wear. Mount has edge and corner wear, marks and mount verso has tape marks.
